If I lose one of the metal clips or hardware, will you replace it?

How much retention will the holster have?

All of our holsters are made for each specific firearm and will be made very snug. Your firearm will not wiggle around in the holster. You will be able to adjust the amount of retention by breaking in the holster. We provide break-in instructions with all of our holsters.

Can I remove my thumb break or add a thumb break later?

No. After the holster is made, it cannot be modified to remove or add the thumb break.

If I do not choose to line my holster with suede, will the holster scratch the finish off of my firearm?

What happens if the holster does not fit?

When a holster does not initially fit, it is almost always because it has not been broken in yet. Our holsters are made from genuine leather, and require a break-in period, just like a new baseball mitt. If the holster is too tight after breaking in, we can stretch the holster at no additional cost. If the holster does not fit the firearm after being broken in and stretched, we will remake the holster at no additional cost.

What is your return policy?

If I already own a holster that I like, will you be able to recreate it?
